Conversation is a meeting of minds with different memories and habits. When minds meet, they don’t just exchange facts: they transform them, reshape them, draw different implications from them, engage in new trains of thought. Conversation doesn’t just reshuffle the cards: it creates new cards.
Theodore Zeldin
Learning a new trick will just happen randomly when I’m skating and if I feel good doing it, I take it to a street spot. If I’m really confident in it I practice it a lot, so I can do it in a contest.
Nyjah Huston
I grow old learning something new every day.
No matter how much we learn, there is always more knowledge to be gained. In this connection I am reminded of a short poem that has been in my mind over the years. It reads as follow: I used to think I knew I knew. But now I must confess. The more I know I know I know I know I know the less.
A. Ray Olpin
Learning results from what the student does and thinks, and only from what the student does and thinks. The teacher can advance learning only by influencing the student to learn.

Bae Doona
There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.
Benjamin Disraeli
If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must Man be of learning from experience.
George Bernard Shaw
With engineering, I view this year’s failure as next year’s opportunity to try it again. Failures are not something to be avoided. You want to have them happen as quickly as you can so you can make progress rapidly.
Gordon Moore
War is not inherent in human beings. We learn war and we learn peace. The culture of peace is something which is learned, just as violence is learned and war culture is learned.
Elise M. Boulding
[In my home workshop,] generally I’m mending things, which is interesting because you learn a lot about why they broke.
James Dyson
Each pattern describes a problem which occurs over and over again in our environment, and then describes the core of the solution to that problem, in such a way that you can use this solution a million times over, without ever doing it in the same way twice.
Caroline Alexander
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim.
Thomas B. Macaulay
Neither comprehension nor learning can take place in an atmosphere of anxiety.
Rose Kennedy
Cramming seeks to stamp things in by intense application immediately before the ordeal. But a thing thus learned can form but few associations.

Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind.
Marva Collins
Where I grew up, learning was a collective activity. But when I got to school and tried to share learning with other students that was called cheating. The curriculum sent the clear message to me that learning was a highly individualistic, almost secretive, endeavor. My working class experience…was disparaged.
Henry Giroux
We learn from experience that men never learn anything from experience.
George Bernard Shaw
Everything is a learning process: any time you fall over, it’s just teaching you to stand up the next time.

Corin Nemec
I’m never satisfied. I’m always trying to get better and learn from my mistakes.
Russell Westbrook
The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.
Steve Ballmer
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
Pablo Picasso
I sincerely congratulate you on the arrival of the mockingbird. Learn all the children to venerate it as a superior being in the form of a bird, or as a being which will haunt them if any harm is done to itself or its eggs.
Thomas Jefferson
Learning is a critical part of our mission and organizational culture.
Charles Best
A lot of the progress in machine learning – and this is an unpopular opinion in academia – is driven by an increase in both computing power and data. An analogy is to building a space rocket: You need a huge rocket engine, and you need a lot of fuel.
Andrew Ng
Opposites are not contradictory but complementary.
Niels Bohr
Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe.

Desiderius Erasmus

The good teacher discovers the natural gifts of his pupils and liberates them.
Stephen Neal
Contrary to widespread faith in “communication” and “knowledge transfer,” information has a social life, and unless new insights are embedded in the social system they evaporate.
Richard Pascale
Abandon learning and there will be no sorrow.
We are by nature observers, and thereby learners. That is our permanent state.

Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before.
Kurt Vonnegut
The biggest learning is that an athlete needs to know when to stop. To know that if I push beyond this, there could be a problem.
Neeraj Chopra
Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
George Bernard Shaw
It may be said “In research, if you know what you are doing, then you shouldn’t be doing it.” In a sense, if the answer turns out to be exactly what you expected, then you have learned nothing new, although you may have had your confidence increased somewhat.
Richard Hamming
Teaching is the royal road to learning.
Jessamyn West
To achieve our goals of educating bold and ambitious children, we must invest in enriching, quality early child care and learning.

Jet Li
Everybody’s a work in progress. I’m a work in progress. I mean, I’ve never arrived… I’m still learning all the time.
Renee Fleming
I’d like to be more patient! I just want everything now. I’ve tried to meditate, but it’s really hard for me to stay still. I’d like to try to force myself to do it, because everybody says how wonderful meditation is for you, but I can’t shut my mind up. So patience and learning is the key.
Ellen DeGeneres
Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army.
Edward Everett
You will either step forward into growth or you will step back into safety.
Abraham Maslow
I am learning English and even try to talk in English with people. I don’t care if people are laughing at me. I always look at the Internet for the correct pronunciation and play word games.
Shehnaaz Gill
If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.
Albert Einstein
The growth of understanding follows an ascending spiral rather than a straight line.
Marion Milner
In my life, I only kept learning different dance forms, yoga forms. From my gurus, I have learned how to be disciplined and consistency. Do a particular thing continuously, you will get the results.
Koena Mitra
We can learn to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about gay people. The same way we have learned to ignore the bullshit in the Bible about shellfish, about slavery, about dinner, about farming, about menstruation, about virginity, about masturbation.
Dan Savage

Minds are like parachutes – they only function when open.
Thomas Dewar, 1st Baron Dewar
You all have learned reliance
On the sacred teachings of Science,

Make it your motto day and night.
And it will lead you to the light.

James Joyce
You must feed your mind with reading material, thoughts, and ideas that open you to new possibilities.
Oprah Winfrey

Richard Pascale
Of all evil things the least quantity is to be borne, but of learning and knowledge, the more a man hath, the better he can bear it.
Wilfred Bion
As an artist grows older, he has to fight disillusionment and learn to establish the same relation to nature as an adult, as he had when a child

In reality, serendipity accounts for one percent of the blessings we receive in life, work and love. The other 99 percent is due to our efforts.
Peter McWilliams
Index-learning turns no student pale,
Yet holds the eel of Science by the tail.
Index-learning is a term used to mock pretenders who acquire superficial knowledge merely by consulting indexes.
Alexander Pope
The minute we stop learning, we begin death, the process of dying. We learn from each other with every action we perform. We are teaching goodness or evil every time we step out of the house and into the street.
Leo Buscaglia
The best learners… often make the worst teachers. They are, in a very real sense, perceptually challenged. They cannot imagine what it must be like to struggle to learn something that comes so naturally to them.
Stephen Brookfield
What I am going to tell you about is what we teach our physics students in the third or fourth year of graduate school… It is my task to convince you not to turn away because you don’t understand it. You see my physics students don’t understand it… That is because I don’t understand it. Nobody does.
Richard P. Feynman
If you want to be constructive in politics, the less you look back, the better. If you do look back, then it can only be to learn for yourself through the events that have taken place.
Angela Merkel
Acknowledging mistakes and learning from them are the first steps.
Travis Kalanick
Read as much as you can, discarding negative or disturbing information. Learn by doing, and the Goddess and God will bless you with all that you truly need.
Scott Cunningham
Anyone who wishes to learn how to play chess well must make himself or herself thoroughly conversant with the play in positions where the players have castled on opposite sides.
Alexander Kotov
Most of my hobbies involve athletics and outdoor activities. I’m willing to learn about anything and converse and pick people’s brains, and I ask people to do the same. I’m into learning anything new and trying new stuff.
Roman Reigns
The original idea before Mint was a life and goal planning system I called Carpe Viva. The idea was that all of life’s goals, from buying a house, getting an MBA, or learning Spanish could be quantified in both time and money.
Aaron Patzer
Only by learning to live in harmony with your contradictions can you keep it all afloat.
Audre Lorde
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.

Peter Drucker
That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.
Aldous Huxley
My kids miss me when I’m away, but I don’t mind living out of a suitcase. The U.K., U.S., France, Germany, Iraq… it’s such a thrill meeting people of different cultures, learning about and from them. It’s changed my perception about life, humanity and spirituality.
A. R. Rahman
Mistakes are the stepping stones to wisdom, we learn from trial & error, we become wise by understanding problems.
Leon Brown
Paradoxically, the more I learned to let go of my own wishes and desires (in this case, the desire not to be hit), the more they became possible.
Peter Ralston
Our passion for learning … is our tool for survival.
Carl Sagan
We read to find out what the world is like, to experience lots of lives, not just the one we live. If it is true that our lives are chaotic and we crave a shape, stories are the shapes that we put on experience, containing all the wisdom in the world. We can even choose what kind of wisdom suits us.
Ramona Koval
In the perspective of every person lies a lens through which we may better understand ourselves.
Ellen Langer
I’ve always said, the key organ here isn’t the brain, it’s the stomach. When things start to decline – there are bad headlines in the papers and on television – will you have the stomach for the market volatility and the broad-based pessimism that tends to come with it?
Peter Lynch
The parent knows that the child cannot be artificially motivated to learn; they know that he is already motivated by the strongest driving force on earth: his inner intent.
Joseph Chilton Pearce
Americans are people who prefer the Continent to their own country, but refuse to learn its languages.
E. V. Lucas
The fun thing about Snapchat is really the surprise and the joy that comes from learning how to use it.
Evan Spiegel
One purpose of CRC cards [a design tool] is to fail early, to fail often, and to fail inexpensively. It is a lot cheaper to tear up a bunch of cards that it would be to reorganize a large amount of source code.
Cay S. Horstmann
Progress is possible only if we train ourselves to think about programs without thinking of them as pieces of executable code.
Edsger Dijkstra
Patience helps us to view imperfections in others more generously to the end that we may learn to be more wise than they have been.
Neal A. Maxwell

Blaise Pascal
To free a person from error is to give, and not to take away.
Arthur Schopenhauer
What we want is more learning in schools and less activism in schools.
Scott Morrison
Of course everybody’s thinking evolves over time. Only dead people cease learning, and I am not certified dead yet. So I am still learning.
Meles Zenawi
My children have been learning lessons about entrepreneurship since they were in kindergarten, and these lessons are paying off: even though they are only 22, 18, and 15, they have already collectively launched three nonprofit organizations and several new businesses.
Naveen Jain
I think there’s too much emphasis placed on learning things by rote that you don’t really care about. So what happens to students in school is that they eventually lose interest in learning, because they’ve been forced to learn the required courses, rather than pursing their passion.
Jack Canfield
Change is the end result of all true learning.
Leo Buscaglia
The generation of random numbers is too important to be left to chance.
Robert Coveyou

Janet Evanovich
You have to learn and keep learning.

Maria Montessori
The purpose of learning to employ every minute properly is to unclutter our hours, deliver us of feverish activity and earn us true leisure.
Robert Updegraff
Knowledge is more a matter of learning than of the exercise of absolute judgment. Learning requires time, and in time the situation dealt with, as well as the learner, undergoes change.
Frank Knight
If this validates anything, it’s that learning how to bunt and hit-and-run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light on the dugout camera.
Ryne Sandberg
We must learn to apply all that we know so that we can attract all that we want.
Jim Rohn
Love the little trade which thou hast learned, and be content therewith.
Marcus Aurelius
Eventually, while researching, you’ll learn something you didn’t want to know. Some fact that ruins a plotline you had in mind. The good news is that sometimes, learning all the facts can make for a much more interesting story than you originally had in mind.
Andy Weir
Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn.
Benjamin Franklin
As I enter a new phase of life and my circle broadens, I start learning new things.
Kapil Dev
Cops and robbers resemble each other, so there’s not a lot to learn in terms of learning the logistics of committing the crime or investigating the crime.
Andre Braugher
As you get bigger, you have to learn to delegate. It’s also an excellent way to get staff involved in the company’s operations.
Azim Premji

Everywhere, we learn only from those whom we love.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
Lou Holtz
Raising children with an emphasis on intrinsic rewards is not a technique, a method or a trick to get them to do what the parent wants them to by subtler means, but a way of life, a way of living with children with real respect for their intelligence and for their being.
Mamie Van Doren
It has been said that 80% of what people learn is visual.
Allen Klein
Sometimes you just have to jump out the window and grow wings on the way down.
Ray Bradbury
My father is a real idealist, and he’s all about learning. If I asked for a pair of Nikes growing up, it was just a resounding ‘No.’ But if I asked for a saxophone, one would appear and next day and I’d be signed up for lessons. So anything to do with education or learning, my father would spare no expense.
Hugh Jackman
I can tell you, honest friend, what to believe: believe life; it teaches better that book or orator.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
To survive and even thrive in a changing world, nature offers another great lesson: the survivors are those who at the least adapt to change, or even better learn to benefit from change and grow intellectually and personally. That means careful listening and constant learning.

Eric Butterworth
I’m learning that you can be comfortable and still look beautiful.
Selena Gomez
Every performance has provided a learning experience, and as we go, we keep fine-tuning the shows. If we decide to do a tour, we rehearse until we perfect. One thing that I do prior to every show is that we huddle the band and pray. We thank more than we ask.
J Balvin
Though modern Marriage is a tremendous laboratory, its members are often without preparation for the partnership function. How much agony and remorse and failure could have been avoided if there had been at least some rudimentary learning before they entered the partnership.
Carl Rogers
If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavorable. Favorable conditions never come.
C. S. Lewis
I was open to taking risks and learning from my mistakes.
Riya Sen
If we wish to know the force of human genius, we should read Shakespeare. If we wish to see the insignificance of human learning, we may study his commentators.
William Hazlitt
Real wisdom is not the knowledge of everything, but the knowledge of which things in life are necessary, which are less necessary, and which are completely unnecessary to know.
Leo Tolstoy
In the spider-web of facts, many a truth is strangled.
Paul Eldridge
America’s best teachers are always looking for new ways to bring learning to life.
Charles Best
If you would attain to what you are not yet, you must always be displeased by what you are. For where you are pleased with yourself there you have remained. Keep adding, keep walking, keep advancing.
Saint Augustine
Neurologically, I’m a quadriplegic, so virtually everything about my work has been driven by my learning disabilities, which are quite severe, and my lack of facial recognition, which I’m sure is what drove me to paint portraits in the first place.
Chuck Close
“Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before,” Bokonon tells us. “He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way.”
Kurt Vonnegut
Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know.
Daniel J. Boorstin
It is by teaching that we teach ourselves, by relating that we observe, by affirming that we examine, by showing that we look, by writing that we think, by pumping that we draw water into the well.
Henri Frederic Amiel
Creative thinking may mean simply the realization that there’s no particular virtue in doing things the way they have always been done.
Rudolf Flesch
You sit at the board and suddenly your heart leaps. Your hand trembles to pick up the piece and move it. But what chess teaches you is that you must sit there calmly and think about whether it’s really a good idea and whether there are other, better ideas.
Stanley Kubrick
For a small child there is no division between playing and learning; between the things he or she does just for fun and things that are educational. The child learns while living and any part of living that is enjoyable is also play.
Penelope Leach
Just learning to think in another language allows you to see your own culture in a better viewpoint.
Gates McFadden
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

Sudha Chandran
If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it.
Mao Zedong
Microsoft knows that reliable software is not cost effective. According to studies, 90% to 95% of all bugs are harmless. They’re never discovered by users, and they don’t affect performance. It’s much cheaper to release buggy software and fix the 5% to 10% of bugs people find and complain about.
Bruce Schneier
I am forever on the way
Maxine Greene
Shakespeare, Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln never saw a movie, heard a radio or looked at television. They had ‘Loneliness’ and knew what to do with it. They were not afraid of being lonely because they knew that was when the creative mood in them would work.
Carl Sandburg
Before an individual can be saved, he must first learn that he cannot save himself.
M. R. DeHaan
Books have led some to learning and others to madness.
When you’re learning how to do magic, the first rule is ‘never reveal a secret.’ In a way, by telling someone I’m a magician, it kind of gives away the best secret of all… How interesting to take the magician out of the equation of a magic show.
Michael Carbonaro
Learning is not so much an additive process, with new learning simply piling up on top of existing knowledge, as it is an active, dynamic process in which the connections are constantly changing and the structure reformatted.
K. Patricia Cross
Our job is obvious: we need to get out of the way, shine a light, and empower a new generation to teach itself and to go further and faster than any generation ever has.

George Bernard Shaw
I learned more about the economy from one South Dakota dust storm that I did in all my years of college.

I’ve been making sushi for 38 years, and I’m still learning. You have to consider the size and color of the ingredients, how much salt and vinegar to use and how the seasons affect the fattiness of the fish.
Masaharu Morimoto
There is the desire of a consumer society to have no learning curves. This tends to result in very dumbed-down products that are easy to get started on, but are generally worthless and/or debilitating.
Alan Kay
My heart is singing for joy this morning! A miracle has happened! The light of understanding has shone upon my little pupil’s mind, and behold, all things are changed!

Stanislaw Ulam
Conversation is the laboratory and workshop of the student.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Education is not the piling on of learning, information, data, facts, skills, or abilities-that’s training or instruction-but is rather making visible what is hidden as a seed.
Thomas W. Moore
I lived in a world where social arrangements were taken for granted and assumed to be timeless. A child’s obligation was to learn these usages, not to question them. The complexities of racial deportment were of a piece with learning manners and etiquette more generally.
Drew Gilpin Faust
All of the top achievers I know are life-long learners. Looking for new skills, insights, and ideas. If they’re not learning, they’re not growing and not moving toward excellence.
Denis Waitley
We all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls.

Charles E. Leiserson
You never stop learning in F1. It’s the typical thing that all drivers say, but it’s absolutely true. But also, apart from driving, you learn a bit about the political side of F1. People don’t realise how much there is outside the car.

A little learning is a dangerous thing; drink of it deeply, or taste it not, for shallow thoughts intoxicate the brain, and drinking deeply sobers us again.
Alexander Pope
Or heritage and ideals, our code and standards – the things we live by and teach our children – are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings.
Walt Disney
There can be infinite uses of the computer and of new age technology, but if teachers themselves are not able to bring it into the classroom and make it work, then it fails.

Andrea Dworkin
When the problem [quantum chromodynamics] is finally solved, it will all be by imagination. Then there will be some big thing about the great way it was done. But it’s simple -it will all be by imagination, and persistence.
Richard P. Feynman
Whatever you are studying right now, if you are not getting up to speed on deep learning, neural networks, etc., you lose. We are going through the process where software will automate software, automation will automate automation.

Warren Buffett
I can’t say it enough that learning how to learn is one of the greatest skills anyone can have. It’s why I advocate that everyone go to college.
Mark Cuban
Perfect love casts out fear. Where there is love there are no demands, no expectations, no dependency. I do not demand that you make me happy; my happiness does not lie in you. If you were to leave me, I will not feel sorry for myself; I enjoy your company immensely, but I do not cling.
Anthony de Mello
I’m a big believer in growth. Life is not about achievement, it’s about learning and growth, and developing qualities like compassion, patience, perseverance, love, and joy, and so forth. And so if that is the case, then I think our goals should include something which stretches us.
Jack Canfield
We need to create schools that are organized to meet the needs of the kids they serve instead of what we’ve been doing. We expect kids to adjust to the schools and if they can’t, we say something is wrong with the child – instead of focusing on engagement and nurturing the love of learning in kids.
Pedro Noguera
You always pass failure on the way to success.
Mickey Rooney
Accepting the key premise that the learner is the primary customer of schooling means others follow naturally. … The core business of schooling is learning, and the quality of learning experienced by all learners should be the standard against which performance is measured.

Andy Hargreaves

Washington Irving
A person who speaks cleverly is witty; one who asks questions is smart.
Terry Carr
This type of man who is devoted to the study of wisdom is always most unlucky in everything, and particularly when it comes to procreating children; I imagine this is because Nature wants to ensure that the evils of wisdom shall not spread further throughout mankind.
Desiderius Erasmus
Mistakes are a fact of life. It is the response to the error that counts.
Nikki Giovanni
Any fool can know. The point is to understand.
Albert Einstein
It was never factually true that young people learn to read or do arithmetic primarily by being taught these things. These things are learned, but not really taught at all. Over-teaching interferes with learning, although the few who survive it may well come to imagine it was by an act of teaching.
John Taylor Gatto
Learning from Martin Sorrell will be perfect. I won’t leave him alone, I’ll be asking him questions the whole day, just like a striker. He’s going to have to tell me everything.
The Chinese, whom it might be well to disparage less and imitate more, seem almost the only people among whom learning and merit have the ascendency, and wealth is not the standard of estimation.
William Benton Clulow
The first time a student realizes that a little learning is a dangerous thing is when he brings home a poor report card.
Mark Twain
I do all the evil I can before I learn to shun it? Is it not enough to know the evil to shun it? If not, we should be sincere enough to admit that we love evil too well to give it up.

Billy Graham
Do the best you can in every task, no matter how unimportant it may seem at the time. No one learns more about a problem than the person at the bottom.
Sandra Day O’Connor
In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.
Tom Bodett
It is never easy to win but it is a lot easier to win when you play well. The key is winning golf tournaments when you are not playing so well. Managing your game is something that I feel that I am still learning to do.
Rory McIlroy
The laptop brings back a more seamless kind of learning.
Nicholas Negroponte
other people maay be there to help us, teach us, guide us aolng our path, But the lesson to be learned is always ours
Melody Beattie
English people don’t have very good diction. In France you have to pronounce very particularly and clearly, and learning French at an early age helped me enormously.
Vivien Leigh
I’ve led a school whose faculty and students examine and discuss and debate every aspect of our law and legal system. And what I’ve learned most is that no one has a monopoly on truth or wisdom. I’ve learned that we make progress by listening to each other, across every apparent political or ideological divide.
Elena Kagan
Men grind and grind in the mill of a truism, and nothing comes out but what was put in. But the moment they desert the tradition for a spontaneous thought, then poetry, wit, hope, virtue, learning, anecdote, and all flock to their aid.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The great end of education is, to discipline rather than to furnish the mind; to train it to the use of its own powers, rather than fill it with the accumulation of others.
Tryon Edwards
Beliefs: Those things we hold to be true despite evidence to the contrary.
Joseph O’Connor
Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, teachers.
Richard Bach
You’re never going to learn something as profoundly as when it’s purely out of curiosity
Christopher Nolan
Babylon, Learned and wise, hath perished utterly, Nor leaves her speech one word to aid the sigh That would lament her.
William Wordsworth
I don’t study to know more, but to ignore less.
Juana InГ©s de la Cruz
Be passionate and bold. Always keep learning. You stop doing useful things if you don’t learn. So the last part to me is the key, especially if you have had some initial success. It becomes even more critical that you have the learning ‘bit’ always switched on.
Satya Nadella
A school should not be a preparation for life. A school should be life.
Elbert Hubbard
At home we have always regarded the dining table as the prime seat of learning. We planned it so it was impossible to see or hear a TV from the table, and it has paid dividends in the volume of ideas that have been shared over the evening meal.
Noel Whittaker
Too often, shared visions really mean, “I have a vision; you share it!”
Andy Hargreaves
In the middle years of childhood, it is more important to keep alive and glowing the interest in finding out and to support this interest with skills and techniques related to the process of finding out than to specify any particular piece of subject matter as inviolate.
Dorothy H Cohen
When we have passed the tests we are sent to Earth to learn, we are allowed to graduate. We are allowed to shed our body, which imprisons our souls.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
When you a darker brunette and have pale skin like I do, it can wash you out a bit, so learning to contour is really helpful. I think you can be a bit more bold with eye makeup to define your eyes, and the same with lip colors – you can go for dark wine colors, which I love.
Olivia Wilde
Every day is a learning day.
Winston Marshall
I had been impressed by the fact that biological systems were based on molecular machines and that we were learning to design and build these sorts of things.
K. Eric Drexler
In large states public education will always be mediocre, for the same reason that in large kitchens the cooking is usually bad.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Look around at things that just aren’t getting done. Maybe there’s a project you could tackle. Maybe there’s an issue that always gets back-burnered for other priorities. Challenge yourself to take on those difficult assignments. They’re learning opportunities, and you have a chance to change something for the better.
Doug McMillon
To have great poets, there must be great audiences.

If we could share this world below, If we could learn to love… If we could share this world below, We’d need no world above.
Ray Nelson
We need social and emotional learning in our schools. I think we also need to get good food in the schools. We can’t be feeding our kids Pop-Tarts and chocolate milk.
Tim Ryan
The golden rule is that there are no golden rules.
George Bernard Shaw
O but we dreamed to mend Whatever mischief seemed To afflict mankind, but now That winds of winter blow Learn that we were crack-pated when we dreamed.
William Butler Yeats
At Microsoft, we’re aspiring to have a living, learning culture with a growth mindset that allows us to learn from ourselves and our customers. These are the key attributes of the new culture at Microsoft, and I feel great about how it seems to be resonating and how it’s seen as empowering.
Satya Nadella
I constantly want to be learning, growing and better understanding things. And see where that takes us.
Kirk Cousins
Everybody has fallen down or been disappointed in love. Where you truly shine is when you get back up. Use it as a learning experience and believe in all of the possibilities.
Sherry Argov
We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding that we must learn a great deal more about ‘and’.
Arthur Eddington
One of the things we did at PayPal was collaborative filtering and machine learning: looking at patterns of human behavior. We used it there to predict when people would try to cheat the system to get money. But you can predict pretty much any behavior with a certain amount of accuracy.
Max Levchin
As we seek to eliminate individualism in teaching, we should not eradicate individuality with it.
Andy Hargreaves
Two basic rules of life are: 1) Change is inevitable. 2) Everybody resists change.
W. Edwards Deming
If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.
Research indicates that, as long as we keep using our brains in an active way, we continue to build neural pathways as we get older. This gives us not only the ongoing potential for creative thought, but also an additional incentive for continuing to stretch ourselves.
Ken Robinson
You have to keep on learning all the time unless and until you become perfect in all the strokes.
P. V. Sindhu
Scholastic learning and polemical divinity retarded the growth of all true knowledge.
David Hume
Learning is ever in the freshness of its youth, even for the old.
Every record I do is a learning process for how I want to do the next one.
The big thing is, it’s about learning which off-speed pitches to swing at. A lot of people say, ‘Oh, this guy can’t hit a curveball; this guy can’t hit an off-speed pitch.’ But it’s about swinging at the right one. Swing at the hangers. Swing at the ones you can handle.
Aaron Judge
When you are asked if you can do a job, tell ’em, ‘Certainly I can!’ Then get busy and find out how to do it.

Regina Brett
If one does not reflect, one thinks oneself master of everything; but when one does reflect, one realizes that one is master of nothing.
Never seem wiser, nor more learned, than the people you are with. Wear your learning, like your watch, in a private pocket: and do not merely pull it out and strike it; merely to show that you have one.
Lord Chesterfield
Teaching is a passionate profession.
Andy Hargreaves
I think every role you do prepares you for the next one. Of course, ‘Nashville’ has been, and will continue to be, a huge learning experience for me as an actor. It’s something that I grew a lot doing.
Aubrey Peeples
Indeed, learning to write may be part of learning to read. For all I know, writing comes out of a superior devotion to reading.

Jet Li
My achievements in the field of chess are the result of immense hard work in studying theory.
Alexander Kotov
The earliest memories I have of the ocean are actually stories – stories from my grandfather, the legendary ocean explorer and conservationist Jacques Cousteau. My passion for ocean conservation stems from learning at a very young age that we’re all connected; we’re all in this together.
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
Learning to be your natural self in front of five cameras and a silent studio takes time. Trying to be funny under duress is probably a lot like trying to play golf relaxed under pressure.
Colin Jost
My teachers could easily have ridden with Jesse James for all the time they stole from me.
Richard Brautigan
Learning -the kind of ignorance affected by (and affecting) civilized races, as distinguished from ignorance, the sort of learning incurred by savages. See nonsense.
Ambrose Bierce
love of learning is the most necessary passion … in it lies our happiness. It’s a sure remedy for what ails us, an unending source of pleasure.
Emilie du Chatelet
Look about you. Take hold of the things that are here. Let them talk to you. You learn to talk to them.

You’d always see a lady or a little girl sitting at a piano. I decided I wanted to play something more unexpected, so that’s when I got interested in learning to play the guitar.
Barbara Lynn
A brainscan cannot interpret itself and neither can a data dashboard in education.
Andy Hargreaves
The sole justification of teaching, of the school itself, is that the student comes out of it able to do something he could not do before. I say do and not know, because knowledge that doesn’t lead to doing something new or doing something better is not knowledge at all.
Jacques Barzun
It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations.
Winston Churchill
You can finish school, and even make it easy – but you never finish your education, and it’s seldom easy.

Andy Hargreaves
Every cook has to learn how to govern the state.
Vladimir Lenin
In the end, the humanities can only be defended by stressing how indispensable they are; and this means insisting on their vital role in the whole business of academic learning, rather than protesting that, like some poor relation, they don’t cost much to be housed.
Terry Eagleton
I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
In the realm of ideas, it is better to let the mind sally forth, even if some precious preconceptions suffer a mauling.

I said that an expert was a fella who was afraid to learn anything new because then he wouldn’t be an expert anymore.
Harry S. Truman
Teenagers learn best by doing things, they learn best in teams and they learn best by doing things for real – all the opposite of what mainstream schooling actually does.
Geoff Mulgan
Life isn’t about algebra and geometry. Learning by making mistakes and not duplicating them is what life is about.
Lindsay Fox
After 39 years of business, I’m still learning. I go through this every year -identifying new strategies that are extremely important.
Fred DeLuca
When we see persons of worth, we should think of equaling them; when we see persons of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves.
An important verity about knowledge is that the brain works most effectively with consciously retained information. We more easily remember what we want to recall later. When we feed our fourteen billion brain cells with information that will enrich us and help others, we are really learning to Think Big.
Benjamin Carson
A good education is the next best thing to a pushy mother.
Charles M. Schulz

I am permanently a student of people who make great songs, but besides sort of learning by absorption, I just love listening to music, hearing what’s going on, hearing new things or new old things.
John Darnielle
Learn as much by writing as by reading.
John Dalberg-Acton
As we have come to view teaching, it begins with an act of reason, continues with a process of reasoning, culminates in performances of imparting, eliciting, involving, or enticing, and is then thought about some more until the process can begin again

What we have to learn, in both meditation and in life, is to be free of attachment to the good experiences, and free of aversion to the negative ones.

It was a fantastic learning experience and OK, I got slammed because I wasn’t Audrey Hepburn but you could have predicted that, really, if you’d opened your eyes wide enough.
Julia Ormond
Patriotism, when it wants to make itself felt in the domain of learning, is a dirty fellow who should be thrown out of doors.
Arthur Schopenhauer
Every uneducated person is a caricature of himself.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
In most schools, we measure children on what they know. By and large, they have to memorize the content of whatever test is coming up. Because measuring the results of rote learning is easy, rote prevails. What kids know is just not important in comparison with whether they can think.
Sugata Mitra
One cannot guess how a word functions. One has to look at its use and learn from that. But the difficulty is to remove the prejudice which stands in the way of doing this. It is not a stupid prejudice.

Certainty generally is illusion, and repose is not the destiny of man.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
We learn by example and by direct experience because there are real limits to the adequacy of verbal instruction.
Malcolm Gladwell
Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.

I learned the bad guys are not always bad, the good guys are not always good, and to quote Captain Barbossa, the parameters are like rules, mostly guidelines. And that it takes a little bit of bad boy to fight the evil in the world. –Terri Mitchell

In the real world, the smartest people are people who make mistakes and learn. In school, the smartest people don’t make mistakes.
